Re: Nine Eleven
In my opinion terrorists are not the perfect soldier. I honestly believe they got sloppy in these two incidents. At the end of the Afghan war to free them from Soviet rule Ossama did attack the Soviets, this convincing the main body of the CIA that he was ok. In the clandestine world of war and in conventional war the most trusted people are the ones that prove themselves with blood. ie killing the enemy. Now think this enemy is suicidal and why wouldn't they kill a few allies to prove themselves.
Ossama did attack the Soviets but only at the end when victory was already certain. In this dooping the main body of the CIA.
The shinning light is that a handful of people saw through this and convinced enough people to play it smart and check on some things. This put the right people on a couple planes and they spent their lives to save others.
